Dem: Please ‘Turn in Your Guns’
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to America: Turn in Your Guns (Examiner)
Speaking on the floor of the House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), the Texas Democrat once called the "congressional boss from hell," urged Americans to turn in their guns.
"I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns," she said.
"Oh no, I'm not going to take your guns. But look at what Dick's Sporting Goods did ... they wanted to be part of the solution and part of America," she added.
This week, the company announced that it would "stop selling and displaying guns at its store closest to Newtown and would suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles nationwide out of respect for the victims of the shooting," The Hill reported.
